Let My People Go

Can you imagine a music group being BANNED by a nation, out of fear that they would corrupt young fans? A tipster sent this link, reporting that Israel has lifted its ban on the most corrupt band in music history: The Beatles?!

...of course, similar debates continue today. Is graphic violence and sexual content in video games contributing to "the corruption of youths"? The music industry is not immune from such manic fear; anyone purchasing an album with a "Tipper Sticker" (i.e., parental advisory label) should know that this nation, the bastion of free speech, has had its own scares of censorship.
